About the Chikuhodo MK-KO Koi (Carp) Powder Brush

This stunning new brush by Chikuhodo is a collaboration between artist Hideki Kimura and Yamanaka Makie. The handle features Kimura's carp motif embossed in gold and colors on the handle. Carp fish are called “koi” in Japanese and are very symbolic in the culture. They represent luck, prosperity, and good fortune.
